What is said during an emergency is as important as what is done. Acosta and Prager teach "Verbal First Aid" with this book and during seminars. They provide research results showing that autonomic nervous system functions can be influenced by words alone, either negatively or positively. Saying the right words at the right time can change the outcome of critical care, can alter the chemicals the body generates, and can set the course for recovery for people before they arrive in the ER or trauma center. Many chapters with examples of the right words to make a difference in trauma situations, emotional illness, physical and chronic illness, suicide attempts, at the time of death. I've been amazed at the effectiveness of using these techniques and how they can help even a situation where one has to comfort a child or an adult who has witnessed a horrific event, or who has merely suffered a scrape or bruising.
